There is no point detailing the weird things that happen when you hear your physiotherapist advising you to 'duck walk' in the pool. I should have googled 'duck walk' and discovered that whatever it is, it is not what I thought it was. Had I done that my knees would not have hated me as blisteringly as they have these last three days.
Still went walking around the burnished gold neighbourhood after dinner. Yellow leaves are almost as transient as cherry blossoms and must be enjoyed when one can.
